Because most products in the IMRF Bookshop are delivered by other companies, different post & package systems are used.

IMO Publishing

All products from IMO Publishing are send from the United Kingdom. E-products do not have any weight, so therefore no postage is needed.

IMO Publishing is using UPS as their delivery service. 

International shipments outside the European Union may be subject to customs clearance procedures which can cause delays beyond the original.
